My Secret to Prevent Food from Sticking to the Lodge Cast Iron Grill


Lodge Cast Iron Grill

I watch  a lot of cooking shows, and Alton Brown showed a great tip to prevent food from sticking on a cast iron grill.

Before placing meat on the hot surface,let the grill to get hot (350° to 450°).

Coat the bottom of the ridges with coarse kosher salt.  where the grease, oil and juices will collect

Using a basting brush or folded paper towel, brush the top of the ridges with vegetable oil or olive oil.  The oil keeps food from sticking to the ridges, and the salt absorbs the fat and grease.  Clean up really easy with minimal scrubbing..

 

 

Large Handles for Easy Handing

Since the surface of the
Lodge LPG13 Cast Iron Grill Griddle
will be quite hot after use, it has large handles on both sides for easy and ergonomic handling and movement.  If you must move the grill while it is hot, use a rag or oven mitts.  This will prevent burning your hands.

 

 

 

Is it Oven Safe?

 

The Pre-Seasoned  cast iron grill can go from the stove top where you can brown or sear the outside of your meat, and straight into an oven up to 600° Fahrenheit without changing pans to cook the meat all the way through.

If a large amount of liquid collects on the bottom of the grill, remove the meat first before removing the grill from the oven.  This will prevent spilling any hot liquid in the oven.  This can potentially cause a fire, or a nasty burn.

Your Lodge Cast Iron Grill may be hot to the touch.  Make sure you use oven mitts when moving the grill from the stove top or oven.

 

How to Care for the Lodge Cast Iron Grill?

 

As with any cast iron cookware, you should hand wash your Lodge Cast Iron Grill with warm soapy water.  Do not put in the dishwasher.  After several uses and cleanings, the non stick coating may begin to wear off.

Just follow these simple instructions to season a cast iron skillet. You will notice the seasoning has warn off, when food begins to stick to the surface of the grill or griddle side.  You can easily re-season your Lodge Cast Iron Grill/Griddle.
